Leeds United started the season strongly, and their performances and results suggested that they could challenge for the automatic promotion places.
The Whites, who have not featured in the Premier League since 2004, narrowly failed to finish in the top six of the Championship last season.
The West Yorkshire outfit will be determined to end up in the playoffs this season at least.
Recent results and performances, though, have been disappointing, as Leeds have fallen out of the playoff spots for the time being.
Leeds fans are understandably not happy with the current situation, and some of them seem to be turning on Victor Orta.
Orta was appointed the Director of Football at Leeds in May 2017 after leaving Middlesbrough, and he has been responsible for making most, if not all, of the signings in the summer transfer window.
While head coach Thomas Christiansen has also been criticised by the Leeds fans for not being able to get the results, some of them appear to be harsh on Orta.
Below are some of the best comments:
There's no excuse for Green not being here. He outplayed Felix in preseason, that call came from Orta, who IMO doesn't have a clue....— Eric (@EMcLean1982) November 3, 2017
This isn't about Monk, he's history now. Just think we need a better DOF. I personally have no confidence on Orta.— Stephen Greenslade (@DeedaLUFC) November 3, 2017
Orta was always the weak link.— Stephen Greenslade (@DeedaLUFC) November 3, 2017
Orta had one of our best budgets 4 years and left us with no strength in depth. He went for quantity over quality and now we're paying 4 it.— Stephen Greenslade (@DeedaLUFC) November 3, 2017
I think he’s being undermined by Orta which has got through to the players— CM (@chris_lufc1) November 3, 2017
Orta? Surely he’s just as responsible for the underperforming?— Adam Haywood (@DonVito_84) November 3, 2017
They’re his players?
TC’s job is to work with what he’s given
Orta is the problem - simply not good enough— Adam (@adamwaller82) November 3, 2017
